What You'll Get
Rock music from the 1990s takes listeners back to a simpler time when music came in the form of compact discs and robots only killed what they could eat. Travel back in time without disrupting continuums with this GrouponLive deal to see the Summerland tour, featuring Everclear, Sugar Ray, the Gin Blossoms, Lit, and Marcy Playground at Time Warner Cable Uptown Amphitheatre. For $17, you get one general-admission lawn ticket for Sunday, July 15, at 7 p.m. (up to a $34 value, including any fees). Doors open at 6 p.m.
Like a 1990s alternative-rock station come to life, the Summerland tour rattles speakers with a quintet of seminal rock bands that once grabbed hold of Generations X and Y with their chart-topping tunes. Headlining the evening, frontman Art Alexakis and his signature bleached-blond 'do lead Everclear as they evoke the Discman days in songs that have dominated the airwaves, such as “Santa Barbara” and “Father of Mine.” Heartthrob TV host Mark McGrath hops on his Sugar Ray saddle and oozes charisma while performing summertime staples “Fly” and “Every Morning,” occasionally pausing to politely pry fans from his ankles. The Gin Blossoms conjure up memories of college romances gone awry in hits such as “Hey Jealousy” and “Found Out About You,” which meld jangle-pop hooks and unabashed pangs. Rounding out the roster of late-20th-century rockers, Lit illuminates the stage with its breakthrough ditty “My Own Worst Enemy,” and Marcy Playground reacquaints ears with the hit “Sex and Candy.”
